BOLD PD offerings

CLIPP recognises the need to provide ongoing quality professional development to all staff to ensure quality blended, online and digital (BOLD) learning and teaching practices across eight learning and teaching domains:

  • Learning – Understanding your learners and their needs
  • Assessment – Creating effective assessment tasks
  • Design – Designing an inclusive learning journey
  • Development – Building your online learning space
  • Facilitation – Engaging face-to-face, blended and online teaching practices
  • Feedback – Quality feedback for learning
  • Monitoring – Monitoring engagement and learning
  • Evaluation – Reviewing for future enhancements

It is recommended that all teaching staff engage with a minimum of one professional development opportunity within each learning and teaching domain per calendar year (pro rata basis), or as negotiated with their line manager given individual, course and program learning needs.


Self paced | Online | Just in time

A suite of online resources are available on the Teaching practices website that can be accessed at any time to support your BOLD learning and teaching needs.

Workshops: School or campus based

Facilitated | Face-to-face, blended and virtual | On request

Professional development can be more beneficial when it is tailored to address your immediate course/program/school/campus learning and teaching needs. CLIPP work with schools and campuses to organise, design and/or deliver workshops on a range of requested BOLD learning and teaching topics. Workshops can be face-to-face, blended or virtual. Please contact your School Learning Designer to arrange the professional development needs for your course/program/School team.

Workshops: Central – Learning technology boot camp

Facilitated | Face-to-face | Early semester

A learning technology ‘boot camp’ is offered early semester (pending sufficient registrations), on each campus, to support basic and intermediate learning technology skill building for designing, developing and facilitating BOLD learning and teaching practices. Also includes an optional one-to-one session with a Learning Designer at the conclusion of the workshop, to support your individual needs. Keep your eye out in FedNews for the next available workshop.

Webinars: Central

Facilitated | Virtual | Monthly
